Staff at a Breckland pre-school have a strong commitment to continuous improvement, according to education inspectors.

Ofsted has rated Necton Little Oaks, based at Necton Primary School, as ‘good’ in all areas following an inspection last month.

A report, published last week, upholds the pre-school’s ‘good’ rating from 2009.

Praising the setting for how it meets the needs of children who attend, inspector Jacqui Oliver said: “Staff have a very good understanding of how children learn.

“They provide a well-planned environment and many opportunities for children to make decisions and become independent.”

She also said the quality of teaching was good, with children making good progress and developing key skills for their next stage of learning.

Children are also happy and settled thanks to a “strong” key-person system, and behave “very well”.

Ms Oliver also praised the pre-school’s partnerships with parents and carers, who speak highly of the education and care provided.

To further improve, the pre-school has been advised to strengthen its staff supervision process in order to share good practice and raise teaching standards even further.
